Finding Sammy a new home
On a student's budget, Katie has to find Sammy a new home before she brings Forrest home. And not just any home, she wants to find a place Sammy will be happy, loved, and have a job.
That hasn't quite happened, yet, though--amazingly enough in this market--she's had a lot of interest and response to her Craiglist ad.
I know, I know.. watch out for those Craigslist horses, right?
Sammy really is a horse you can jut get on and ride without any hassle, be it in the arena or on the trails. She even handled ending up in the middle of a mountain bike race once.
Katie thought she had one lined up, but it fell through so is investigating a couple other options, including donating Sammy to a therapeutic riding program.
It's a hard decision to let a horse go when you decide you need something different. I wish Katie all the wisdom and insight possible to make the right choice for Sammy.
